‘They made a mistake’: Liquor board chair slammed with DUI charge after night out at Maryland casino

Published

on

Prince George’s Co. liquor board chairman had such a good time on Thursday night at the new MGM Grand casino opening that he scored a charge of driving under the influence.

Fox5DC reports that Charles Caldwell, III was arrested around 11:40 pm after a crash with two other cars was reported. The officer who responded to the incident smelled alcohol on Caldwell’s breath and gave him a field sobriety test. He failed and refused to take a breathalyzer test.

Caldwell told Fox5 that he’d had a cocktail or two over the course of the two hours that he spent at the MGM Grand opening but “this was blown out of proportion.”

He also denied that he refused the breathalyzer and that he did take one once he arrived at the police station. “The results were inconclusive,” he said.

He also explained that he’s almost 73 years old and is sometimes unsteady on his feet and that was why he failed the officer’s field sobriety test. “I believe they made a mistake,” he said.

The Board of Licenses Commission is made up of five members appointed by Gov. Larry Hogan (R-MD). They enforce alcohol and beverage laws in the state of Maryland and implement local rules and regulations.

Ambassador Michael McFaul was interviewed Wednesday by MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell.

"How do you think this should play out, now that they are assembling step-by-step insider accounts with people who are bravely stepping forward, some giving up their careers, Mike McKinley and others having had to quit over this," Mitchell noted. "How do you think this plays out legally or in terms of the politics of impeachment?"

"Well, legally, I’ll defer to others who are more expert. I think what it does underscore is how grossly inept and just broken down the Trump foreign policymaking process is," McFaul replied.

Feds investigating whether Rudy Giuliani was a victim of foreign spy effort targeting Trump

Published

President Donald Trump's defense attorney is not only a subject in a criminal investigation, but is also part of a counterintelligence probe into whether he was compromised by a foreign power, CNN reported Wednesday.

This is an investigation that goes far longer and back further than we realized and also that it’s much broader than we initially thought," CNN senior justice correspondent Evan Pérez reported.

"One of the things we’re getting a picture of, a better picture of is this involves not only Giuliani’s financial entanglements with allegedly corrupt Ukrainian figures but also counterintelligence angle is there to this and the idea that perhaps Rudy Giuliani and some of his business dealings were part of essentially an influence operation, a foreign influence operation with a target being the Trump White House," he reported.

This is fucking insane.
